Welcome to the Cognitive Science Initiative

logo4The Cognitive Science Initiative is a new interdisciplinary undertaking, involving scholars from Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Linguistics, Molecular Biology, Neuroscience, Philosophy, and Psychology.  This year is the initiative’s first year, and our primary goal at this time is to foster a vibrant intellectual community based around cognitive science. The year’s events include a colloquium series, a lunchtime talk series, and a workshop on language processing. The initiative’s events are open to all members of the Princeton community, and student participation – both graduate and undergraduate – is strongly encouraged.

To receive notification concerning the initiative’s events, please contact the Chair of the Organizational Committee, Sarah-Jane Leslie (sjleslie@princeton.edu). 

The Cognitive Science Initiative is supported by generous funding from the Psychology Department, the Philosophy Department, and the Council of the Humanities.
